Donkey Ad Watch: Meg Whitman and her “Lies Lies Lies Lies, Lies Lies Lies”!

In Politics on July 16, 2010 at 11:15 am

While Jerry Brown may be sitting this round out to the consternation of his supporters, California Working Families continues to pummel Meg Whitman. They just released this new spot that cuts through the clutter to a classic Violent Femmes tune which (as a creative who makes political ads) makes me envious that they thought of this song before I did.

While they may not have the coin behind them that E-Meg does, they are a formidable creative challenger.  This is one of a handful of spots they have created which impress with their clarity and messaging (which in a nutshell is: She’s from corporate America and she’s not here to help) but it is the first one that breaks the mold of the all too typical political voice-over-photos bore-fest.
